Happy eleventy-first episode indeed! I sent your Uncle a note and am wishing him well.
I grabbed a copy of Coelacanth and a few other tracks from I-tunes the other day. I intend to get more as well as order some actual physical albums.
Thanks for all the chuckles, info, music, and free-thought!
Yay! More George, more George!
I love the radio show archive. You totally sucked me in on your imaginary guests gag. I was waiting around to hear from the tallest violist. I played viola back in the day.
Geo, just writing to say I enjoyed the show.(\"Great, bozo, now he thinks you hated all the other ones!\")
As a confessed fan of Jon Stewart, the Non-Coloring Book excerpt gave me a real feel for what it must have been like to be in the Daily Show audience... but I think the highlight of this week\'s episode was the Tempo song you finished with.
I\'m about the same age as you and lived for a time in the USSR (and later, Russia), and the rush of nostalgia I felt simply listening to that piece was overwhelming. Alas, I never studied Ukrainian, but there are enough similarities between the two languages that I could work out many of the lyrics. Reminded me a bit of some of Vladimir Vysotsky\'s more playful material, actually.
Thanks again for the podcast. Oh, and of course I fired off an email to Uncle Roman. Perhaps the first he\'ll receive from the UK. Or, at least, from Newcastle. Oh, okay, fine... from my house. Geesh. ;-)
1.Show sounded fine to me.
2.Who was this genius who convinced you to join Facebook? Truly this must be a person of astounding brilliance...and hot.
3.Icepick, you had me at \\\"rabid Jon Stewart fan\\\". And no, it was not just you - I thought exactly the same thing.
4.I\\\'m sorry to hear about Uncle Roman. I\\\'ll send him a little note. (with photos?)
5.Great show. Nighty, night.
Podcast funny? Check.
Sound levels good? Check.
Uncle-gram dispatched? Check.
My work here is done.
One of my favorite essays from non coloring book. I\\\'m a rabid john Stewart fan and it warms my cockles to hear that it is the real shit and not just highly edited hack.
Was it just me or could everyone hear George\\\'s voice in his Dad\\\'s singing?
I have checked 4 different sources of the show and it sounds ok to me. I wonder what\\\'s up? Is anyone else having the same problem? I listened to my original file, from the podcast site, from a seperate window and on iTunes. All sound ok. Or have I had some kind of stroke?
Tell me what\\\'s up? Hmmmm...

Sounded fine to me.
Cha Cha CHA!!!
p.s. the audiobook idea is not so bad... gives the material another quality... immediacy
Cheers from Sydney. _PP
